Leading electronic producer, Samsung has been brought before a law court in United State, following faults in its washing machines which were reported to have caused explosion in some homes.
The lawsuit, filed in New Jersey alleges that customers’ machines had “blown apart” and “exploded in owners’ homes”. This is not a good time for Samsung as the company recently recalled its newly launched Galaxy Note 7 due to a fault which had resulted to explosion.
Melissa Thaxton, one of the plaintiffs said: “It was the loudest sound. It sounded like a bomb went off in my ear. There were wires, nuts, the cover actually was laying on the floor. I just remember covering my head and leaning towards my son and just screaming this scream that I didn’t even know I could scream.”
Samsung said: “In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items.”
There is speculation that Samsung might call for the replacement of affected model in US and other part of the world. The company recalled 70,000 washing in Australia last year after claims they had caused nearly 100 fires in the country.
